    Is there any way to validate the coverage of the shell scripts ? i have project having lot's of shell scripting, i need to ensure static Analysis can be performed on the coverage for the shell scripts, is there any tool available ?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "static Analysis", but if you want to check that the syntax of the shell scripts (and they are bash/sh) are okay, you can use Bash's built-in feature:
    bash -n;echo $?
    If the syntax is okay, a '0' will be printed. If there is something wrong with the syntax, then errors will no doubt be spewed to the terminal, and a non-zero exit status will be printed.
